Introduction

The Chronicles Projects is a platform where young, unknown translators present short stories or excerpts from young, unknown authors. The translators are upcoming professionals and talented graduates and students in literary translation. This is their debut. The authors are discoveries too. The translators searched for authors and novels that appeal to them and were not translated into Dutch before. The Chronicles Projects is an inspiring prelude to The Chronicles Live, the project around young festival chroniclers and their translators that takes place during the Crossing Border festival in November.
